'Startling finding' in the early detection of ovarian cancer

McGill's Dr. Lucy Gilbert says discovering that certain cancers start in the fallopian tubes will mean a much higher "rate of being cured" for women.

The researchers' findings were published Thursday in the medical journal, The Lancet.

80 per cent of women already have advanced ovarian cancer when they learn they are sick, according to Gilbert. With early detection, that will change. 

As another preventitive, the MUHC will set up 12 new ovarian cancer clinics.
